Re: Is it time to accept Faulconer OST did it better than the original?

I know you've said in the past that you've based this partly on some of the people you've interacted with, but even if that is true that still only accounts for a tiny percentage of the 26 million viewers that watched DBZ on CN every week. Surely you can't be saying that ALL of those viewers are al...

Re: Is it time to accept Faulconer OST did it better than the original?

So... are we just going to ignore the massive number of adaptations (not dubs) in the 70's-80's alone and even a lot of those that existed in the 90's? As in, where did dubbing begin if not with DB and a few other gateway shows? And if so, which company dubbed them properly? I'm just going to copy ...

Re: Is it time to accept Faulconer OST did it better than the original?

Well I can't personally speak for everyone else on here, but when I say it that term, i'm referring to this notion that a loud vocal minority of sub fans have where they think simply being a sub fan automatically makes them a superior fan to those who unironically enjoy the dub(i'm not accusing you...

Re: Is it time to accept Faulconer OST did it better than the original?

i'm just getting sick and tired of these pointless debates and the rampant elitism that always seems to come with them. Serious, genuine question: can we like nail down a concrete, definitive answer on what exactly we all mean here when we use the word "elitism" in these kinds of conversations? Bec...

Re: Are There Any Updates On The Harmony Gold Dub Of Dragon Ball?

(and yes I know people like Kunzie would've much rather that DB had never gotten dubbed period, but I don't agree with that mentality at all as even if you don't like the dub you can't argue that it did bring the original Japanese version to a much wider audience then it would've otherwise) I never...

Re: Vic Mignogna

Well the complaint would be equally valid if you replaced Trump and Clinton with Warren and Sanders in the post. Totally fair point. Though honestly, I mainly bothered because A) this thread has generally gone on for LONG stretches of off-topic or vaguely-connected political tangents in general and...

Did you really just quote that ENTIRE post just for two sentences??
And not even bother reading a word of it in the process, because the whole thing wasn't really even about Clinton and Trump (other than a small piece of it at the very beginning). :wtf: :wtf:

Most people didn't hate Clinton, if they did she would not have won the popular vote by over 3 million There's a huge, huge difference between genuinely liking/not hating someone, and holding one's nose and choosing the less horrible option out of two very horrible options. Also worth noting that C...

Re: Thoughts on a potential Netflix series.

It's a neat theory, but completely wrong. Again, it's like someone arguing that J.K. Rowling's concept for Harry Potter having ghosts must've come from Scooby-Doo. Hey come on now: who doesn't remember that famous Star Wars technique from the original trilogy where a Force user creates a giant orb ...

Re: Thoughts on a potential Netflix series.

What manhua is that panel from? If that's Iron Marshal, it doesn't predate Dragon Ball and it's actually a rip-off of Dragon Ball instead. I thought for a moment that I took that from Oriental Heroes/Dragon Tiger Gate (which predates DB by quite a bit), but on secondary inspection you're right, it ...

Re: What if dragon ball was a comic book series?

Because western comics don't build themselves around the protagonist growing stronger. The protagonists start the story about as strong as they're ever going to get and the drama comes from how the villain will be neutralized instead of depicting the new ways the hero will grow from week to week.

I'm aware that plenty of the wuxia stuff DB is known for has been done in live action films, but the production values are mostly awful. While I am by no means an expert, I did grow up in an age where you watched whatever was on TV, and late at night or on weekends, it was kung fu films or Kaiju mo...

He needs an editor, literally. His wife was the editor on the original trilogy and I think their divorce in 1983 is more responsible for his subsequent output than people realize. This is spot on. Lucas was once a very talented filmmaker, but he also owed a lot to both his friendship with Francis F...
